The ginger beef is amazing!
This was another fabulous recipe from Grace Young! If you have not purchased a wok and her book, I so encourage you to do so. Now! Run, do not
I am amazed by the flavor of the dishes I have prepared so far. Tasting fish sauce and oyster sauce on their own is enough to turn me off. But combined with other ingredients, the finished stir-fries have a wonderful flavor. And making them at home, the taste is superior to anything you'll find at a Chinese restaurant.

I was confused with the instructions of needing
a 1/4 cup (1 oz. approx.) of sliced pickled ginger.
I purchased fresh pickled ginger from the sushi dept.
at the grocers. It came in a one ounce container and
was filled with thin shavings of ginger. I sliced those
into thin strips and the longer strips I cut in half.
I had way more than I needed. In the end I felt a
1/4 cup (as apposed to 1 oz.) was the perfect amount.
So few ingredients ~ yet amazing flavor!
Pickled ginger and scallions.
The one thing I will do next time, is too cook the beef
a bit less. I think I may have over cooked it a smidge.
Now onto the Summer Pepper Corn!
Fresh corn from our local farm.
Their corn is so popular, they put out a
sign to let you know corn is available.
You will not find the recipe here on my blog or within the Wok Wednesdays community. We encourage readers to go and purchase this book at their local independent bookstore or on-line.
Make sure to visit my co-wokkers to see their results on this stir-fry.
Look for the LYL link on the Wok Wednesdays page.
